British tourists booked on a mini-cruise to Amsterdam were left feeling distinctly queasy after spending just six minutes at their destination following a 30-hour ferry journey from hell.

The passengers set out from Tyneside's ferry port at North Shields on Friday afternoon on a 48-a-head break to the Netherlands.

They should have arrived in Holland at 9am on Saturday - but instead bad weather and rough seas meant their overnight ferry arrived 13 hours late at its destination.

I feel blessed now, I had several hours. Time enough for a coffee and a cheese sandwich!

Remembering Karsten with his tiny cheese toasty in Amsterdam.

My trip to Amsterdam was almost as scary as the trip those poor people had.
I was in a car with a crazy Italian in orange pants!

Fine wine and fish and chips. :beer:

You wouldn't think red wine would go with fish and chips, but it did that night! :D

I can't remember what the wines were - I wasn't as wine edumucated then as I am now. I suspect I'd be a lot more appreciative of them now! :o

Italian reds, high acidity. Fatty chips/batter. White fish with no iron, it does sort of make sense.
